Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort in La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Plenty of people are drawn to Tabacón for the thrill of bunking at the base of the 5,360-foot (and active) Arenal volcano. Yet it's the hot springs that run through the property and creates natural thermal pools that make staying there such a restorative experience. Meandering pathways flanked by tropical plants connect the spa’s low-slung buildings, and the treatment rooms in open-air bungalows take in some of the best rain-forest views. Not surprisingly, the spa specialises in volcanic-mud wraps and hydrotherapy treatments, like a sea-salt-spiked Jacuzzi session.
